Verse 1

"I won't let you cry."

Now just where have I

Heard that one before?

That's right, on the lips

Of the guy who dipped

My heart to the floor.

Chorus

Now the heart knows who would stay

And who would stray.

So all your false promises?

Threw them away.

Chorus

Cause my heart knows who would stay

And who would stray.

So all your false promises?

Threw them away.

Verse 2

"I like this sweet thing-

Furious flirting."

Well, I know the end.

You'll say, "I'm sorry,

You're great, don't worry",

Put my heart on mend.

Chorus

But the heart knows who would stay

And who would stray.

So all your false promises?

Threw them away.

Chorus

Cause my heart knows who would stay

And who would stray.

So all your false promises?

Threw them away.

Bridge

I'm not insisting that you're a bad person.

You just have this instinct flowing through your veins,

This need to chase after every pretty thing.

You can't be tamed, and I can't have these feelings.

Chorus

Now the heart knows who would stay

And who would stray.

So all your false promises?

Threw them away.

Chorus

Cause my heart knows who would stay

And who would stray.

So all your false promises?

Threw them away.
